Help! Cut-and-Paste PDF Files Glitch

Written by Gary North on January 21, 2017

I have hit a digital wall. I cannot do a cut and paste of any PDF document into Word, WordPerfect, or any other text page. The extracted PDF text goes vertical in ASCII: a single line of words down the page. Paragraphs disappear.

Take a look. I sent this screencast to a professional PDF specialist who created a PDF of one of my books. But the same problem occurs in all PDFs.

If you have a solution, let me know — preferably with a screencast. I use screencast-o-matic.com.
